I am a qualitative and mixed methods consultant at the Cambridge Clinical Research Centre for Affective Disorders (C2:AD) and an honorary Research Associate in the Research Department of Mental Health Sciences, UCL. My current collaborations include: UCL (Prof Sonia Johnson, Dr Joanna Moncrieff, Ms Fiona Nolan); Anglia Ruskin University (Prof Shula Ramon); University of Exeter (Prof Willem Kuyken) and University of Warwick (Dr Stephen Marwaha). I teach on qualitative research methods and the theory of social representations for the MPhil in Social and Developmental Psychology.


I am an applied social psychologist working in the field of mental health. I work as a qualitative research collaborator on a number of mixed methods NHS-based research projects. My current research covers various areas of mental health including acute care, psychiatric medication management, early intervention services and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. I use mainly interviews and focus groups to give voice to the perspectives of mental health service users within these projects, and to explore the views and experiences of various stakeholder groups (service users, carers and professionals). The projects I am involved in span a range of research contexts including service delivery and evaluation, development, evaluation and implementation of clinical tools, randomised controlled trials, and purely qualitative work. I am also interested in the theory of social representations and, in particular, its application in organisational settings.
